    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zynga (San Francisco, CA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Fast interview process. Nice people. From the time the recruiter called to the time I was interviewing in person was 2 weeks. They are very sure about what they know so do not challenge their thoughts or comments even if they are wrong. This might be true for any interview but especially here. I don't think they like disagreements or differing views. You must always support your views with "proof" which makes it difficult working outside of data and stats and really getting creative and out of the box.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult. The only thing you have to remember is that they really want you to be playing their games before you go there. You MUST be a big fan of their games. They will ask you about your levels, collections, etc.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Work/life balance was poor. Looked like everyone was always stressed out. People looked paranoid.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Zynga (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Job interview process is driven by the recuiters or via in house referrals. Referrals clearly get a higher priority. Usually, there are two rounds of phone screens followed by one day of on-site interview. On-site interview involves a day of technical interview with ~5 individuals. You will be tested on your analytical ability, creativity, problem solving skills, leadership, project management skills.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zynga (San Francisco, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Applied through a business school career site posting. Recruiter contacted me and we were able to set up a call. I happened to be in SF the week of the call, so when that went well Zynga very quickly scheduled me to come and interview at HQ two days later. The company got back to me two weeks later to say no.

    The interview questions were largely geared toward consulting case questions, which is symptomatic of why Zynga is where it is.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Zynga in October 2012.

    Interview

    Initial phone interviews went well, very professional. In person interviews were a total mixed bag. I was left by myself for long periods of time (30 minutes sometimes). Worst experience was when one of the video interviewers decided to sit at the back of his conference room and munch on a bag of Doritos, crinkly noises and all. Not even sure why there was a video interview portion.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions exceedingly specific to their field. Not really surprising, but making it a little more general wouldn't have hurt.   Answer Question
